Internet Explorer 9, Windows 7, Wrap up
Well, folks, it seems that Windows 7 month is on its way out. To celebrate all we’ve learned this month, we’ve compiled some of the highlights from around the community (we’re suckers for nostalgic look-backs). March isn’t over yet though, so dive on in and share your Windows 7 opinions and experiences with us!
Blog About Windows 7
From little-known tricks to big picture planning, there is plenty of valuable information on Windows 7 in the blog world. Check out some of our favorites from this past month:
- Ed Tittel’s Windows Enterprise Desktop blog offers insight into the world of Windows OS setup and configuration, migration, virtualization, and more in the context of those who work with Windows on large networks.
- Tony Bradley’s Windows 7: Through the Looking Glass has timely updates on the goings-on related to Windows 7 and general tech subjects.
- Nathan Simon writes a blog about general IT-related subjects, but he’s got a great tutorial on how to disable Windows 7 automatic update restart for newer end users.
- Of course, we’ve got plenty of Windows 7 coverage at the Enterprise IT Watch blog, from why or why you shouldn’t upgrade to Windows 7, how 7 companies are making the migration to Windows 7, and the sad but necessary retirement of Windows XP.

Open IT Forums: Windows 7 Style
One of the perks of community style learning is getting a plethora of perspectives and shared experiences in the form of Open IT Forum questions. We employed this benefit during Windows 7 month in hopes that Windows 7 veterans would be able to ease the migration for Windows 7 newbies.
